"We wrote this song in London a few years ago with Iain James, Linnea Sodahl and Jake Manson and always loved it,” recall Banx & Ranx. “We decided to go back and revisit it, ECM Style, flipping it into a funky reggae vibe with ‘4 on the floor’ drums, a Rub-a-Dub bassline and a Jamaican guitar skank to drive the off-beats. After unlocking the production, we thought of Zach Zoya for the vocals and he absolutely nailed it. We've been supporting him for years and it makes sense to share the journey with another Montreal-based artist."


“Working with Banx & Ranx is like working with family at this point,” says Zach Zoya. “The guys have been showing me love and support since day one; some of the first sessions I ever did was with them. Working with Soké and Yannick is just pure fun. We bounce ideas back and forth and usually within an hour or so, we’ve got a banger! I can’t lie, I’m really excited about this one.”


Exuding the carefree and exhilarating energy of late summer nights that extend into the dawn, “The Birds” is the latest hit collaboration from Banx & Ranx to be released this year via 31 East/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.


Known for their positive, creative energy in the studio, Banx & Ranx have solidified their status as a powerhouse in the music industry. With an astonishing 2 billion streams worldwide and over 1 billion views on YouTube, Banx & Ranx's global impact is undeniable. Visibly one of the most successful duos in the industry, Banx & Ranx continue to bring Canadian talent from Montréal to the world.
